Description

At up to 80 cm long, V. t. tristis is the larger of two distinct subspecies. Populations around Perth are completely black, but populations further north in warmer regions become increasingly lighter in colour. At up to 60cm long, the freckled monitor (V. t. orientalis) is a smaller subspecies with a lighter, more distinct colouration, and a less spiny tail. The hatchling of both subspecies are brightly coloured, but only freckled monitors retain much of this colouration into adulthood. Males can be identified after sexual maturity (usually around two years of age) by a large cluster of spiny scales either size of the animal’s vent. Female specimens lack these obvious protrusions and rarely possess more than a small number of spines only slightly larger than the surrounding scales. Both sexes reach sexual maturity by the time they are 20 cm long from snout to vent.[2]
